I also did not approve the noise the 120mm evercool fan makes either

I undervolt it to 5volts and it still make noise. no motor noise, just air whooshs.

It is quiet, but not quiet enough for me

there is a program called speedfan that lets you control your voltage if your fan is connected to your mobo

some people use fan controller like this one

NetTechie , get the LX or AMB over the BQE. They are better cases, IMO, and I have never been wrong, ever. I really dont see how you can say the AMB is better then the BQE. For one thing the AMB is not black. my nec 930sb and MX duo would look kind of out of place with a brown case. Almost every LC...

Yes, I am "stuck" with the hardware. I'm not very dissapointed with its performance, it does everything I want it to. Regarding Spog's post... Is the 80mm at 5v sufficient? If so then I think I'll go for the 80mm l1a. And also for the intake, would a 5v 80mml1a do the trick? I'm going to take out t...
